Escape the urban bustle at Shark Diving and Lanikai Beach. Explore hidden gems such as Makapuu Lighthouse Trail and Kailua Beach Park. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Keawaula (Yokohama Beach) (in Makaha), Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie) and Pupukea (Sharks Cove & Ehukai Beach Park). There's still lots to do: stroll through Koko Crater Railway Trail, kick back and relax at China Walls, take an in-depth tour of Iolani Palace, and choose your vessel at Mana Cruises.

For more things to do, other places to visit, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Honolulu vacation planner.
